If this gets green lit, will the FARKers who derped it up last time bother to read the article on this go around?

It seems like there would be separation of powers issues since CIA is executive.

Oh, I'm not complaining. It was hilarious. Ignorance was being thrown around like Rip Taylor with a bucket of confetti.

Warrantless mass surveillance and eavesdropping is for the little people!
 
2014-03-11 12:04:46 PM  
I'm a tiny bit surprised that this story isn't getting major traction. In a just world, this would be a Watergate-level scandal. The NSA is small potatoes compared to this.

And she said that the CIA appears to have violated the Fourth Amendment, which bars unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as various federal laws and a presidential executive order that prevents the agency from conducting domestic searches and surveillance.

Cry me a river, biatch.

Ironic tag missing.

Seriously though, wouldn't you want to make sure the people running the Senate Intelligence Committee weren't divulging classified information?

Feinstein can suck it though, she's a f*cking fascist.

Feinstein WANTS it to be your civil rights, just not hers. She's one of the big proponents of this kind of thing. She is scum, so when it happens to her I will take some time to point and laugh before pointing out why this is a good reason to oppose everything she stands for.

It's not their place to do that. Especially not using clandestine methods. Besides, that's an obvious pre-excuse.

But Dianne, I thought that the intelligence community could do no wrong? Or was the surveillance you loved to tout not as fun to back up when the all seeing eye is aimed at yourself?

DiFi can DIAF
 
2014-03-11 01:31:04 PM  
Has anyone but the C.I.A. asked if the Senate Committee illegally obtained that draft memo? It seems to me the C.I.A. aren't the only ones stealing classified info here.

It only serves to make the story that much funnier while Feinstein complains about it publicly.

"Let me get this straight, you think that your client, one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante, who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands, and your plan is to blackmail this person?"

It's dangerous to mess with the people who set the rules.
 
2014-03-11 01:32:29 PM  
At this point in time, I don't know why anyone, anywhere, would be suprised to find out they are being spied on.
 
2014-03-11 01:32:37 PM  
This is all Snowden's fault because he didn't stick around to get railroaded into life at the Fed PMITA prison. Oh and he's an attention whoring deuche, I can tell by just looking at him and his slutty girlfriend.

It's more similar to the thought that very few felt bad for Ernst Rohm.

They have a process for that, which does not involve sneaking into their computers and removing the information. An analog: a worker getting onto their boss' computer and altering their (or others') personnel information. As the boss of that boss, I'd be pissed. As a member of the voting public, I AM pissed.

She was perfectly fine with the US government violating the constitutional rights of US citizens:

Gotta love hypocrites like this old biatch.
First she uses her influence to obtain a CCW and then makes it a part of her personal agenda to deny that same right to the 'little people'.
Then she votes for establishing the NSA and for ever increasing domestic spying and then she biatches when that same spying then targets the ruling elite.

I can't wait to dance on this old bag's grave.

Is it Kumbaya time?  Can red and blue and everyone else unite on the proposition: "Dianne Feinstein should be fed to a pack of hungry dogs?"  Or are we going to split into dogs vs. pigs factions?  We have an opportunity here, Americans!

Yeah, she's cool with violating our 2nd Amendment  just as long as she can keep her CCW permit.

As a California voter who generally votes straight ticket...

FARK DIANNE FEINSTEIN!

She is the complete opposite of me.  I side with the Dems on almost everything except gun control. She sides with the Republicans on everything except gun control. She's the living embodiment of cronie capitalism and gun grabber.

I wouldn't vote for her if you held a gun to my head, which if she had her way, you could do easily because I wouldn't be allowed to have one.

I'm as opposed as anyone to the domestic surveillance regime.  But if true, the attempt to control by the branch of government responsible for ensuring the Agency is following the law by intimidation is many, many times more dangerous.

It's a natural outgrowth of having an unchecked executive branch. It might as well be mainstream Democratic and Republican policy.

I'm not really up to speed on all of Snowden's whistle blowing revelations, but did he reveal that more than meta-data / data was being collected as it is sent/received from our home computers; that the feds are actually breaking through peoples home firewalls and scanning their hard drives without a warrant?

Because I assume the latter what some of the folks on here are decrying as hyprocisy on on Feinsteins part.
 
2014-03-11 01:44:43 PM  
FTA:  how the agency secretly removed documents from computers used by her panel to investigate a controversial interrogation program.

Removed, as in copied and deleted?  Or were they only copied?

I'm fairly new to this story.
Given that this article is focused more on the butthurt aspect of the incident, I'll keep my derp to myself for now.

/if it was anything other than material pertaining to an investigation, I would say "fark her" and be done with it.
